Spread over 4 lakh square feet, fulfilment centre will strengthen Flipkart’s supply chain infrastructure in the state
Flipkart has expanded its footprint in Telangana and strengthened its supply chain infrastructure with the launch of a new fulfilment centre (FC) in Sangareddy.
"The new fulfilment centre was virtually inaugurated by Kalvakuntla Taraka Rama Rao, Minister for Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, and Information Technology of Telangana, Jayesh Ranjan, Secretary, Information Technology, Government of Telangana and Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart Group," says an official release.
Spread over four lakh square feet, the centre will further Flipkart’s commitment to India’s digital commerce evolution by empowering local sellers, employable youth, and customers while making e-commerce more inclusive and accessible, the release added. The new FC will support the delivery and logistics of a wide range of product categories including furniture and large appliances, offered by thousands of local sellers and MSMEs in Telangana, providing them access to a national market.
“Digitisation has enhanced prospects for local economies to grow and thrive, and this is being reinforced by e-commerce," says Rao. "I appreciate Flipkart’s ongoing endeavours to create a conducive growth environment for MSMEs and welcome its investments in the state. The new facility by Flipkart will strengthen pan-India market access for local sellers and encourage many of our local communities to become a part of the digital revolution."
Krishnamurthy adds: “We recognise that building strong infrastructure is the backbone of e-commerce. It creates equitable opportunities for small and large businesses alike, helping reach millions of customers nationwide. In line with our commitment to the country's economic progress, we have made important investments across India through upskilling opportunities, infrastructure, and technological advancements. Over the years, we have made significant investments in Telangana to create growth opportunities for sellers, MSMEs, artisans, kiranas, and our ecosystem partners. We hope that the establishment of the Sangareddy facility will give a further boost to entrepreneurs in the state and strengthen their integration with the national market. We will continue leveraging the power of technology and our robust infrastructure to accelerate growth for India and its people.”
Flipkart’s key investments in Telangana include the establishment of six FCs and close to 100 distribution hubs generating over 40,000 job opportunities, the release said.
